Virginia Tech arrived in Orlando a couple of days ago and decided to give Hokie Nation a Christmas present by revealing their uniforms for the Camping World Bowl tonight. For those uniforms, the Hokies decided to wear a uniform that VT has had success in.

Virginia Tech will be wearing a traditional road look with maroon helmets, white jerseys, and maroon pants. The Hokies have won both times they have worn these uniforms against East Carolina and Virginia. VT is also 4-1 when they have worn their white jerseys and 4-2 when they have worn maroon helmets.

With the Hokies technically being the road teams in this matchup, this is a good choice for VT going with a classic look that should be recognizable not only for Hokie Nation, but also for casual football fans. It’s also nice wearing uniforms that you’ve already won in and may have a little extra confidence wearing.
Given how this is one of the most intriguing non-playoff bowls this year, wearing their classic road look should make the Hokies easy to recognize for casual fans and recruits who may be watching. In addition to that, this is simply a sharp look for VT
